important may be at this moment, the state of florida already 41% of precincts reporting because they do so automatically, and largely because -- there are two times in florida. the eastern time, we all know this from the 2000 election, the eastern time zone has been closed for an hour. the panhandle, which means fort walton beach, panama city, pensacola, all the counties around the panhandle had just closed, so their numbers are not yet in. the old saying about florida is the for the north you go, the father southern you get, which means the panhandle is republican territory. the southeast part of the status democratic territory. what decides florida is the interstate corridor that stretches from tampa to orlando and all the way to daytona beach and some small communities in between. that area there will decide florida. that area is in. the panhandle is just coming in. let's look at florida again. it is lopsided at the moment. you can see or you will be able to see in a moment that in a state of florida with 41% of precincts reported, there is a lopsided lead at the moment for barack obama
.m. or future days. the romney campaign is watching closely florida, virginia and ohio. there are very few victory strategies contemplated by boston, the romney campaign, that don't include the buckeye state and they're concerned about signs of high turn-out in the northern part of ohio where the detroit auto bail-out was a big mallet which the president pounded mr. romney. on the southern border of ohio along kentucky, particularly along cincinnati, hamilton county, big optimism and turn-out for the republican campaign. virginia, florida, ohio romney believes so go though so goes the country. romney has only written one speech, a victory speech. >> carl cameron. let's get straight to the president's camp in chicago and ed henry. >> shep, the president has been getting very wistful. it started in iowa what started the obama movement. he said today he was crying partly because it was cold out and thinking back four years ago and thinking about everyone turning out for him last night. he is hoping for big turn-outs in big battlegrounds. i got off the phone with one of the president's senior
will be the united states of america. >> just getting a little update here. i'll tell you in a minute on florida, but welcome back to our special second hour of "the daily rundown." i'm chuck todd. let's see where we stand this hour and how the president night. the president put together a decisive victory last night. falling short of the votes he won in 2008 against john mccain. but he had 303. romney 206. florida's are still on the technically remain too close to call. miami-dade county is counting 20,000 absentee ballots they tell us. that's what they're counting right now. that's in miami-dade. that largest chunk of vote. if that breaks away the way they're going, it's impossible. i guess nothing's impossible. president obama is going to get that one too. it'll be 323 electoral votes when all is s if you will. i want to go to ohio because ohio was a big deal at the time. what was interesting here is where the margins were. it was all wasn't -- this was reduplicating the map. here's what the county map looksnow. i'll go to 2008. if anything, he did better in coal country as you
, polls close early, 13 electoral votes, 48/47, president obama on top. state of florida, two-point lead for president obama. the state of ohio, most people have seen as the hinge point of this election, president obama's up 51/45. let's look at where the battleground states stand. if you average polls taken on the real clear politics website, of the nine battle ground states romney is only leading in the average of those polls in the two of them, north carolina and florida. the other states, president obama's got a lead. i'm talking about iowa, colorado, new hampshire, ohio, nevada, all states where president obama's doing very well. at least as competitive with romney. if mitt romney wins the states in his base, plus the two where he's leading, he only gets to 235 electoral votes, he needs many more to get elected. president obama would have many more, 303. so what mitt romney's got to do is figure a way to take some of those states away from the president. virginia, florida, ohio, colorado, iowa. that's where the election's going to be decided. mitt romney easily got a hill to climb t
is from florida and virginia where he is now takes ohio and new hampshire 270 electoral votes. he loses ohio and takes pennsylvania which is more of an uphill he has more than 270 votes. he has ohio, wisconsin you are safe he still won. i think he's very much in this game. i know a lot of my colleagues are saying he's got it won. i think he's on a winning course. i don't know if he has it won. >> the ground team which is where we are. that's the most important foreground games. i had a series of e-mails with ralph read faith and freedom coalition. he told me he had governor palin with a robo call going through 12 million voters. how far is she from getting voters up. he described a major asset evangelical women, tea party voters social conserves and repeats she is a major asset. we have 183,000 live calls in ohio just wednesday. governor scott walker, senator marco rubio that is part of the ground game. tea party, evangelicals, social conservatives. they have tremendous clout with these groups. anecdotal thing on saturday. i am sitting in the basement, they didn't know wasn't i was. i s
the importance of that state by now. and two points ahead of governor romney in florida. but within the margin of error. also, early voting in florida ends today after the number of early voting days in that state is cut by half this year. 25 million people have already voted early in 34 states and washington, d.c. >>> and back to the frenetic pace on the campaign trail. both candidates have already held rallies in new hampshire, iowa, and wisconsin. >> you do want to be able to trust your president. you want to know -- you want to know that -- that your president means what he says and says what he means. after four years of president, you know me. you may not agree with every decision i have made. you may at times have been frustrated by the pace of change, but you know what i believe. you know where i stand. >> made a lot of promises, but those promises he couldn't keep. and the difference between us, he made promises he couldn't keep. i'm making promises i have kept and i will keep them for the american people. i have a clear and unequivocal message, and that is america is about to come ro
everywhere. and so, it may have an impact, for example in the state of florida, 1.6 million veterans and their families and they can have an impact. they can in ohio as well. the latest scandals, as you know, the latest -- one of the latest is that -- there was a gathering in the consulate in benghazi of the security people. they reviewed the fact that al qaeda was in the area in big time, that they were having greater and greater danger and they sent that to the state department. obviously, nothing happened there. we now have the information that the counter-terrorism security group -- that's a group that is supposed to convene when there is an act of terror to coordinate the efforts of all the different agencies of government. you know that they were never convened? they were never convened in this act of terror that took the lives of four brave americans. so, it's getting out there, greta. it's angering our veterans and it's angering our active duty people. i think it can have an impact because we have still got 5 more days. this is a classic scandal where almost every day or ever
had on it. but you what did romney have to do? north carolina, he picks up florida and virginia where he is is right now and takes ohio and new hampshire, 270 electoral votes. if he loses ohio and takes, pennsylvania, which is a little more uphill then he has 270 votes. if he loses ohio and gets colorado and wisconsin, your state, he still won. i think he is very much in this game and i know a lot of my colleagues are saying he has -- i think he is on a winning course. i don't know if he has got it won. >> the ground game is where we are. that is the most important thing, the ground game. i'm trying to snoop around to see who is doing what for ground games. i have ralph reid, faith and freedom coalition. he told me that he had governor sarah palin through a ro robocl that has gone to 12 million voters. i said how important is she to getting voters out. >> he described her as a major asset and she resonates strongly with evangelical women and social conservatives and she is major assets. 180,000 line calls from volunteers. others do robo calls. governor huckabee and marco rubio. that i
, 63% has already voted. in florida 53%. iowa 44%. and ohio 31%. john dickerson and i were talking about this earlier today. we could have most of the results already by the people that have come out early and that's why the campaigns spent so much time on getting out the vote early, this ground game on these early votes. >> pelley: we'll come back to you early and often. john dickerson is our cbs news political director. john is going to be showing us the various ways that the candidates can get to the 270 electoral votes necessary to twin presidency. john? >> well, first, scott, let's follow up on what bob was saying. we're going to dispatch with 41 of the states, the majority of the country cbs estimates based on the polling that those states are either going to go to barack obama or to mitt romney. that gives barack obama a start where he's likely to get 237 electoral votes, mitt romney is likely to get 191 electoral votes. so here we are at the beginning of the evening, nothing has been called, it's all possibility. so what is the easiest past for each candidate to get to that
, not only virginia but also florida in the southeast to be competitive in this race tonight, but that is not enough. as we move to the midwest he's going to have po pick off one of the key states in barack obama's fire wall, either ohio or wisconsin because you see what happens right there, if the president gets both ohio and wisconsin he only five votes away from an electoral lock. >> well, this is the difficult route that br has. he has to take the atlantic coasts sta s states and move i into the midwest and start picking off midwestern states. early in the night if he sees trouble in those, it's going to be a very difficult night for mitt romney. he has to win those three atlantic coast states. >> if he doesn't, if the president wins any one if we go back to the what if board in the middle. any one of these in play where he's ahead or tied he has 270 electoral votes. >> let's head off to richmond, virginia, with amy klobuchar robach. i know you're at a dnc headquarters. >> reporter: i'm wearing purple. it was completely coincidental but very appropriate because this is a
. >> appreciate all the work you are doing. >> then back to boston to await returns with often eye on florida, ohio and virginia, team romney expects as they go, so will the nation. for months despite record spending, record campaign activity, record advertising, neither candidate really been able to break away from the other. tonight in boston there is optimism. hope, anxiousness. preparation for what could be a very late night that could spill in tomorrow or beyond. megyn, bret? >> thank you. >> bret: now to chief white house correspondent ed henry in chicago. sned >> good evening, bret. last night, the obama camp was predicting a blow-out. we got off the phone with the senior advisors saying they have to admit florida, virginia, and slew of battlegrounds are too close to call. >> president obama tried to displace calm and confidence today -- >> i expect we will have a good night. >> it was clear last night the magnitude of the moment set in. as he waits to find out whether he will secure his place in history as a transformational president or mere one-term wonder. >> he said yes, we can. a
declaring barack obama the declared winner in florida. that state finally finished counting all of the votes four days after the election. the win in the sunshine state gives the president a total of 332 electoral votes. governor romney at 206 electoral votes. this gives president obama 51% of the popular vote. mitt romney 48%. good afternoon. i'm craig melvin. you're watching msnbc, the place for politics. let's go straight to nbc news correspondent kerry sanders from miami. the election is finally put to rest. >> folks in florida have been wondering what is going on. the numbers show that the state did tilt to obama. he got 50% of the vote. romney took 49.1% of the vote. clearly, florida remains a battleground state. the question is, why did this take so long? part of the fact is that early voting was cut back by the republican governor rick scott. if you take a look at the newspaper here, this is the tampa bay times headlines. it says, no apology from scott. he went on to say, what i'm trying to do is improve the way government works. i believe in efficiency. i believe every vote has to c
, invested time, invested money, did not pick up the state. what's important is virginia, florida and ohio. mike, you've got some inside dope on virginia and florida in particular. >> yeah. just to set the stage for the drama of the next hour or so, the mitt romney math starts in florida, virginia, then moves on to ohio. from the war rooms of both campaigns, virginia is -- [inaudible] obama. now, the states are very close in the actual count, and we're trying to be clear here on our coverage about when a state is actually called and what the campaigns are doing, but we're also trying to pull back the curtain a little bit for you on what the campaigns are thinking. before the calls are made, what we're hearing. and just to give you a sense of what the mood is among republicans tonight, one of the top republicans in the country just e-mailed me talking about 2014, says there's another race in two years. so that tells you that the top republicans are hearing things from various states that aren't encouraging. florida, where the romney math starts, 50/50. hundreds of votes out of millions cast
enough votes in florida, virginia, and ohio to carry things over-the-top. they were talking with their get out the vote people, who said they were getting them out to the polls and we think we can carry this off. and suddenly puff. it has to be a bitter disappointment after six long years, the hours put in and the money spent. he dead his best not to show that in his concession speech as he appealed to his supporters to embrace the very best of america. >> we look to our parents, in the final analysis everything depends on the success of our homes. we look to job creators of all kinds, we are counting on you to invest, to hire, to step forward. and we look to democrats and republicans in government at all levels to put the people before the politics. >> reporter: it is unclear at this point whether or not governor romney will remain a leader in the republican party. the president says that he will invite him down to the white house to talk about the issues. either way, though it would appear that governor romney is likely to be the last of his generation to run for the presi
, we may be looking at another recession as well. >> reporter: his election campaign stops in florida, virginia, ohio and new hampshire are critical. while they carry a combined total of 62 electoral votes, any one of them could make or break his chances. and he's not finished yet. a top campaign official confirms he will make more stops on election day. back in ohio and in pennsylvania. a state romney suddenly sees moving his way. but complicating his message, his final targeted states feature unemployment rates that have plummeted in recent months. florida's governor rick scott says that's no thanks to the president. >> guess what? the biggest drop in unemployment in the country is in our great state of florida. and you know what? government didn't do it. you did it. >> what we see now is an administration and a presidency littered with broken promises. >> reporter: romney's running mate, paul ryan, who's largely stayed out of the spotlight in the final days of the campaign, has started to ratchet up the rhetoric. on a conference call with religious conservatives, ryan warned the pr
in the battle ground state of florida, but not before many counties saw a record, gigantic lines. and phil keating joins us from tampa, and the numbers. it was crazy yesterday, phil. >> absolutely, reportedly six hour waits at certain locations in miami-dade county outside of the precinct on friday, three and a half hours all day long to stand in line, shuffle forward and finally cost their ballot. the numbers are big despite the fact in 2008 there was early voting on this sunday before election day, this year, there is not. and that's been a point of convention, democrats and democrat leaning groups have called that voting suppression engineered by the republican dominated legislature and governor's office in the state of florida. however, despite those cries, the numbers have been as good as they were back in 2008. take a look at numbers right now. nearly 4 million, this is through friday, nearly 4 million floridians voted early, by early voting or absentee ballot. and the way it breaks down, the most early voters stand in line and cast their ballot, 45% of those people are registered de
